Electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer The Lion Electric Co. (Lion Electric) is strengthening its collaboration with an EV charging network operator and its parent company with the signing of a reseller agreement.
As part of the agreement, Lion Electric will now offer its North American customers the lineup of AddEnergie charging stations provided by Flo, including AC and DC smart chargers, as well as its associated charging and energy management cloud software services, according to a news release from Lion Electric.
Flo’s suite of charging equipment will be added to the portfolio of charging solutions offered by LionEnergy, a team of infrastructure and energy management specialists within Lion Electric.
LionEnergy’s mission is to facilitate the electric vehicle transition journey for customers by educating them and providing turnkey charging infrastructure solutions tailored to their needs. The team works to support customers at all steps, from equipment selection to installation to management.
Representatives from the companies announced the agreement on Tuesday at the virtual Impulsion MTL International Fleet Forum, according to Lion Electric.
“Adequate energy management is an essential factor to reduce total cost of ownership of electric vehicles, and Flo’s expertise in smart charging is another opportunity for us to offer LionEnergy customers products and services that will help maximize their return on investment,” said Marc Bedard, CEO and founder of Lion Electric.
“Our collaboration with Lion started in 2015 and has helped Flo develop innovative and relevant charging solutions for medium- and heavy-duty electric transportation,” said Louis Tremblay, president and CEO of Flo|AddEnergie.
Tremblay added that the medium- and heavy-duty electric transportation segment is “now ripe for accelerated growth,” and the company looks forward to efficiently powering fleets, ultimately putting more zero-emission vehicles on the road.
As previously reported, Lion Electric also recently entered into reseller agreements with Blink Charging Co. and ChargePoint. The EV manufacturer also partnered in November with green energy technology company Nuvve Corp. to launch vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology as a standard feature on its school buses.
